GlassFish 3.1 : auto-upgrade or not to auto-upgrade?

If you have a GlassFish 3.0.1 installation you probably have been notified that you can update this installation to the newly released GlassFish 3.1 using the update center.

This will do an In-Place Upgrade with the new bits (some 75MB pulled off of the repository for the open source edition for instance).

You can of course also chose a Side-By-Side Upgrade. Both approaches are documented in the Upgrade Guide.


If you've installed GlassFish 3.0.1 as part of a NetBeans bundle such as 6.9(.1) you probably should not blindly update and rather use the recommended NetBeans 7.0 beta 2 for GlassFish 3.1. To stop the pop-up notification you can also use the Update Tool to disable it altogether, leaving you to manually check for updates.

If you intend to stay with 3.0.1, keep an eye on the GlassFishForBusiness blog for associated patch updates.



Where can I find the milestones dates for GlassFish 3.2?

There are a lot of JSF bugfixes I'm waiting for which are targeting this version.

It's going to take a few weeks before any schedule or milestone is posted. Keep an eye on
